Killer NIC to accelerate VoIP

,----[ Quote ]
| Besides the fact that this concept of utilizing VoIP technology should 
| eliminate the lag, 3D spatial part also brings the positioning of the people 
| in the room, which could prove rather interesting. Imagine sitting in a room 
| with your 20 or 40 mates, sorting out a strategy and voice from every player 
| comes like he's in that part of the room.

| One of the most interesting features of the Killer NIC is this FNA
| technology that basically allows you to run applications on your card 
| on the embedded Linux OS.  The Killer NIC is more or less a very
| small computer with a CPU, RAM and connectivity of a USB port and
| thus you or others have the ability to write software to interact
| with it.

| The firewall is based on the wildly popular iptables open source

| All that aside, this 400MHz processor has me drooling though. You
| can run CPU hogging apps on the card with the processor and the
| Linux OS on the card. Teamspeak anyone? Better yet, run your
| anti virus program on the card instead of your main processor.

| The new FNApp, called the FNA Firewall, is an embedded Linux-based
| firewall client application that runs inside the Killer NIC, enabling
| gamers to turn off their CPU burdening firewall and continue gaming
| with security and optimal system performance. The firewall is based
| on the wildly popular iptables open source firewall for Linux. The
| Killer NIC was announced this summer with FNA to allow everyone tof
| reely write, download, and run applications that execute on the
| Killer's Network Processing Unit.



Bigfoot's Killer Network Interface Card reviewed

| They've managed to take a commodity PC component and build $280 PCI
| card around it, complete with 64MB of DDR RAM and a 400MHz processor.
| Cries of extortion and vaporware have been leveled, but now that IGN have
| got their hands on the device, they seem to think it's worth the
| hyperbole. One thing they were careful to point out before firing it up is
| that the Killer NIC runs Linux, so that processor and RAM can be put to
| more use than just routing your frags -- a firewall or a bit of anti-virus
| software could reside right on the card to check over data before it
| even gets to your PC, and IGN figures a BitTorrent client would be
| possible, allowing for full-speed gaming while you use any remaining
| bandwidth for downloading that dev release of Leopard.
